    THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE. THE WAY THAT THE SCHOOL IS RAN IS UNACCEPTABLE. FOR KIDS THAT ATTEND THE SCHOOL FOR THE 1ST TIME IT HARD TO ADJUST TO THE HARSH WAYS OF THE SCHOOL. I think that they really need to change the way that the school is ran. This is a middle school but ran as it the kids are in high school. I understand middle school is to prepare the students for High school but this is just rediculous.

    the teachers are wonderful they honestly care about the students and expect the best from them. any concerns are handled immediately and directed to the parent and councelor for further assistant. i am going to hate to see my child leave this environment however i am sure he will receive the same attention at any redford high school.

    Awesome school. Our family moved out of the Redford school district last year and the thing we miss most is the type of leadership that Pierce has. Great administration with concerned caring teachers and as a result the students are thriving and the test scores prove it. Mr. White could teach a lot of principals how to run a school.

    There is a really good staff at pierce. They try to make sure our students have the best education they can have. Mr. white (the principal) is a very inspirational man that our students can look up to. If you are thinking of moving here this is that best place to raise a family and to get the best middle school education!

    I am also a teacher in this school district. All 3 of my children attended Pierce. My youngest was there when the new Principal was hired. AMAZING!! how he turned the negative into the positive for the students the staff and the parents. Respect for themselves others and property as well as an investment into to their education seems to be the mantr there. I wish we could clone him to put into our High School. My youngest is there now and I am not happy with the lack of respect and increased safety risks. I am very sorry to say that. All 4 elementaries are Fantastic.
